Woodworking presses are popular with the door and panel processing industries, although they can be used in other industries.  Press machines can laminate decorative materials onto furniture panels, building partitions, wooden doors etc.  Presses add pressure to laminates which can then be glued onto multiple surfaces including but not limited to wood, MDF and plywood.

Hot presses are more effective.  They can laminate multiple boards within a couple of minutes.  While cold presses are more economical but can take a couple of hours to finish one process.  When considering which press is suitable for your businesses, budget and production needs should be considered.

Vacuum membrane presses are great for veneer and PVC laminating onto curved or abnormal shaped surfaces.  To spread glue on board effectively, you can buy a press that has the ability to do this, or use a manual glue spreader.  Sliding table saws are great for cutting the panel after it has been laminated.
